Bezpieczny produkt, jakościowy produkt. Zdarzyło się to kilka miesięcy temu. Wręczyłam dziecku dłuuugo wyczekiwanego świeżaka – brokuła Bartka. Tak się cieszył ten mój maluch, całą twarzą się w niego wtulał. I wtedy to zauważyłam – twarz syna robiła się coraz bardziej i bardziej zielona. Jako ekspert od bezpieczeństwa i zgodności produktowej postanowiłam napisać do Jeronimo Martins, wypytać o testy wykonane na zabawce.

I was listening to the speeches summing up the preliminary recent local government election results and I felt this inner wave of discontent, my whole being protesting. None of the leaders was even pretending to be concerned with electors or tasks ahead of them. They spoke only about winning and defeating the opponent….wait a minute, what’s going on? So I’m giving you my vote (and my trust), so that you can “win and defeat”? Those most important to me (being local) elections, that have potential to make my functioning in the neighbourhood easier, are reduced to be just a symptom
